Hi

Can anyone please tell me what the following cylinder sizes are in real money (metric!)?  I've tried googling for a conversion tool to no avail.

All in cubic feet.
72, 80, 85, 95, 105...errr any others you can think of!

thnx

1 Cubic foot = 28.316 Litres

80cu ft x 28.316 = 2265Litres

Should be able to work them out with that.

Hope it helps

Had the same question myself recently after asking about the cylinder sizes in Cayman for hols next year.

80 cuft was the reply...so that means I'll have a 2265 litre tank on my back...?

I think the question is...12l tank equals ??cuft

and

80 cuft equals ?? xx l tank.

That's the problem when you live in a multi-measure society.

Graham...i might post a post on this.

Hi Folks,
This link should help!

You can toggle between US metric and imperial although this pag will show you the internal volume (water content) of all the imperial tank sizes.

Thing to look at is the volume in litres as for example the 80 is a 11.1 litre tank but they only fill to 207 bar so the actual usable air l equate to just less than a 10l filled in the UK to 232 bar

Hope this helps

OK I think this is right, though I may well be corrected  


1 Cubic Foot = 27 Litres (approx)

Yankees & associated Aluminium cylinder countries fill @ 207 Bar.

Therefore for any given cylinder size:

(Yankee size * 27)/207 = Water Capacity in Litres.

eg: 80AL - 80*27/207 = 10.435

106AL - 106*27/207 = 13.826

Hope this helps,

****
